. they asked specifically what was the best thing that president obama got done in the last four years. coming in at number three on the list was preventing middle class tax hikes while raising taxes on the highest levels of income. that was the third greatest accomplishment of the president's first term, according to the latest nbc poll. number two, killing bin laden. killing osama bin laden is what president obama himself refers to as the single most important day of his presidency. for americans at large, that was number two. what ranked higher than that? what does americans think was the single best accomplishment of his first term, even better than killing bin laden? it was ending the war in iraq. president obama campaigned on ending the war in iraq in 2008. he was against that war right from the very start, and in december 2011, after eight and a half years of war, the president, as he promised, did bring the iraq war to a close. when president obama took the office -- took the oath of office four years ago, there were 144,000 u.s. troops in iraq. today it is about 200. that right there

on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it easier to raise, they are saying between $40 to $50. so there is a smaller nature. that's historically consistent. inaugural speeches tend to be over hyped and anti-climactic, and the second one, even more so. >> thanks. >> a look back at the president's first term and a look ahead, when we come back. >> this is fox new

" what do you think of the speech? >> audacious. one, it was an unabashedly progressive speech, shorn of the pose that's characterized as rhetoric. it also, i think, was audacious in its appropriation of the tradition of the american foundings. it was a direct challenge to republicans and the tea party saying you are obsessed with the founders. you are wrong. i am the one firmly within the tradition, and you are outside the mainstream, and you better get on board my program or hit the highway. gerri: maryann, the speech audacious in your view? >> it was bold and audacious and exactly everything he ran on, and that's why he won this election by such a big margin over mitt romney. voters elected barack obama to a second term knowing what they were going to get, and everything he talkedded about today, putting people back to work, dwetting the

weekend of barack obama's second term, i've asked martines bada to share with us what he experienced four years ago, shortly after barack obama was elected as our first african-american president. you need to know that martines grew up in a rough section of new york. brooklyn for you out of towners. but when his family moved, he encountered racism head on. he went to law school and became an advocate for tenants rights in boston where he began to scratch poems on legal pads while waiting in court houses for cases to be called. you can't read any of his 16 books of poems and essay, and most recently, the trouble ball, without understanding a man who is a struggling writer, whose past is a living, breathing news whispering over his shoulder as he scribbles the names of ancestors who once pulled the oars over troubled waters. it was in the wake of president barack obama's victory that brought him here, to the former slave frederick douglas skpchlt with it, a poem. >> rochester, new york, november 7, 2008. this is the long titude and latitude of the impossible. this is the epicenter of the un
